Pure Gold - Upcycled! Upgraded!

15 Sep - 21 Jan 2018 / Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, DE

Waste, scrap, cheap materials – Pure Gold. Ucycled! Upgraded! is about the establishment of an alternative aesthetic canon of material value that integrates rather than distances and that is meant to be universally, practically applicable. The exhibition is dedicated to upcycling – the reuse of previously processed material to create new objects. The materials used in making the examples on display can be found anywhere; sometimes, they are the only ‘raw materials’ available.
